Graduate Programs Medical School
Washington University School of Medicine offers a variety of graduate programs. All applicants should contact their program’s admission office for any merit-based aid that is offered. All other aid provided will be provided in the form of Federal loans which can be obtained by our office with a completed application.
It’s important to begin your application process with the completion of your FAFSA using school code G24620. If eligible, we highly recommend using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on FAFSA. You may avoid having to submit further verification information.
Your FAFSA record will be sent directly to our office when you use our school code. We will process your file once you are accepted into a WU master’s program and your complete admissions information has been provided to our office. You must be enrolled in a degree seeking master’s program and attending at least half time status or greater in order to borrow Federal Direct loans.
For graduate programs half time enrollment is 4.5 hours or greater for each Fall & Spring semesters, and 3 hours for Summer. If you have taken federal loan aid in prior semesters and fail to enroll to a half time status of greater, your loans will go into a grace period and/or repayment based on your individual loan account. You must contact your loan servicer to verify your 6 month grace period usage.
Should a graduate student decide to withdraw from any enrolled credit hours, there may be a calculation performed to verify how much of your Federal aid was earned during the semester. This calculation may result in the return of TIV funds. Please consult your academic advisor and the financial aid office before your withdraw from any credit hours.
